Pegging: The Erotic Discovery for Straight Couples

Pegging is mighty popular!

Traditionally viewed as lesbian sex toys, nowadays over 40% of strap-on dildos that we manufacture at Sh! are bought by female/male couples.

The ProstateThe turnaround came in the noughties when men finally lost their hang-ups and discovered the pleasures of the male G-Spotaka he prostate gland.

'Pegging' as a term, was born from a sex advice column competition in 2001 to name the act with no name.

Back then, male sexuality was at least prescriptive as female sexuality, if not more so - men had to be the "do-ers" - the ones on top. God help a man if he enjoyed anything more than the missionary position after a few pints and a curry on a Friday night!

And if he enjoyed something up his bum, he had to start questioning his sexuality as "real men" didn't!

For us the first whiff of change came when FHM journalist Grub Smith (and girlfriend) came to Sh!, as the manufacturer of the finest strap-ons in the land.

His girlfriend needed to be kitted out with a strap on for a blow-by-blow article he was writing about loosing his anal cherry.

We're hazy on dates, but it was probably late 90's, the height of the lads-mags reign.

We were expecting a "Yeah Mate. Tried it. Didn't like it" article, but what Grub gave the world, and all the lads in it, was a pretty sensitive piece, with all his anxiety - and pleasure - faithfully recorded.

Grub's article also smashed the widely held view that when a woman pleasures her man this way, there must be role-reversal or submission/domination involved.

Sure, some women do like to get all mistress-like when pegging, and some men enjoying playing the opposite role.

But our experience of selling 1,000 of strap-ons as a straight couples sex toy, tells us that most are simply exploring the sensual pleasures of pegging, not role-play.

Whether a toy for a lesbian sex or straight sex, if you are going to wear a dildo in a harness, as a strap-on, we always advise opting for a slightly longer dildo than you may initially think.

This extra length is essential on the out-stroke to prevent the dildo slipping out of her lover altogether.

The other pegging essential is lube. Never scrimp on your personal lubricant during any kind of anal sex as it's vital to keeping your moves smooth and anal sex sensual and pain free.
